Widowed Overnight with Jo Betz
Play • 1 hr 14 min

Jo Betz went to bed one night with a husband, and started the next day as a widow and single mother.

Her husband Craig had a fatal and unexpected asthma attack in the middle of the night, leaving Jo to navigate his shocking sudden death and explain what had happened to their 4 year old daughter.

Jo tells her unbelievable story of how her life completely changed in the blink of an eye, and how she navigated an entirely new existence without her main support. We discuss how to explain death to a child, why putting on a brave face doesn’t mean you’re ‘over it’, keeping busy as a coping mechanism and how she is using her experience to give grief a voice.

Get ready to laugh, cry and feel inspired by this amazing woman.
